B&B's Long-Running Series Stars: Katherine Kelly Lang and John McCook Bring The Heart In Christmas Eve Episode!

The Bold and the Beautiful delivered a Christmas Eve episode on Thursday filled with vintage flashbacks and sentiments between its longest running remaining series stars and character: Katherine Kelly Lang (Brooke) and John McCook (Eric).

The episode begins with Eric thinking about his late wife Stephanie (Susan Flannery) in some flashbacks, and he even begins to sing at the piano,  as family and friends will soon gather fo Christmas Eve at the Forresters.  Stephanie’s portrait is now back in its rightful place above the mansion mantel.  No longer is a self-portrait of Maya (Karla Mosley) the centerpiece of the living room.

Meanwhile, Brooke is planning to celebrate Christmas with her children RJ, Hope and Rick (who is with the Avants in Hawaii) but each cannot make it home at the last minute for various reasons, leaving Brooke all alone on Christmas Eve.  Through flashbacks, a disraught and emotional Brooke thinks back to her kids when they were younger playing in the house, etc.  She realizes time has moved on, the kids are grown up, and its difficult moment for her.  However, the moments plays to the universal themse that many parents or people all over the world may be alone for Christmas, and those who long to be with their family, but because of circumstances, can’t.

Later, Eric shows up and convinces Brooke to join Bill (Don Diamont), Katie (Heather Tom), Steffy Jacqueline MacInnes Wood), Thomas (Pierson Fode), Liam (Scott Clifton) and Wyatt (Darin Brooks) at the mansion and to not be alone.  Once there, Brooke is finally happier and thankful to Eric, her enduring friend.   For Christmas, Eric gives her a locket for Christmas with her four children in it when they were younger.  She then asks Stephanie’s portrait if it is OK to kiss Eric, and she does.

Kudos have to go to Katherine Kelly Lang and John McCook for bringing some heart to a soap opera Christmas eve show that was both touching, and honored the history of their relationship and the show.

What did you think of The Bold and the Beautiful’s Christmas episode?  What did you think of the performances of Katherine and John? Who will be the man in Brooke’s life in 2016?  Comment below!

I loved the B&B Christmas Eve show compared to all the other soaps. I, personally, love flashbacks and B&B had them. I wish Days had done that with their show. Kudos to B&B, Kelly Lang and John McCook for wonderful and touching performances on today’s episode.

I absolutely loved the show! To be truthful, I have never been a Brooke fan, but I’m ready to forgive and forget after seeing her with Eric. The flashbacks and honor they both showed Stephanie was just what we needed at Christmas. Rick and family could always take Brooke’s house for theirs. Merry Christmas to all and thank you Mr. Fairman for what you do.

Stupid episode without Forresters! Thorne has lost his daughter and Eric invite Katie, Bill, Liam, Wyatt

I agree. The party guests don’t make sense. No Pam either. She adds some much needed humor to this show. But I’ve been watching since EP1 and I’m sticking with them.

No mention of Thorne, Félicia, Kristen, Tony, Ridge, Pamela… Rick would be with his parents in the mansion with Bridget! Poor writers ! Enough si enough! I hate stories with Liam, Steffy, Ivy and Wyatt. The Steffy show is boriiiiiing! J. Young, L. Godfrey… are fabulous actors and should be the stars of the BB! This soap, it’s over for me! 2016 will be an ANOTHER show with Liam and Steffy

If I wrote B&B, I would put Eric and Brooke together again as the show’s top couple. They have been married. They have children together. (Bring back Bridget!). Stephanie made peace with Brooke when Stephanie died. I have no desire to see Ridge and Brooke together again. He wants to play in the kids’ sandbox now.

I would have liked to see more of the cast at the party. I thought it was a pretty paltry showing. It was nice to have Stephanie’s picture back up though.

Since 1989 when it was only 2 years old (I was in jr high) and I haven’t missed a Christmas episode yet…I always look forward to it and never haven’t been pleased…not everyone is going to be happy apparently and it’s silly,in my opinion, to gripe about it not going the way you wanted it to go or casted…I’ll only say that I do miss Hope very much. But loved the Christmas episode and all the trimmings..Happy HoHo to all.

I hate seeing Brooke alone! I hate the way Ridge discarded her. He judged her character?? Yet he is a jerk and has done more unethical things than she ever did!! I can’t wait till his LATEST LIE is exposed and his son gains joint custody of “his” child that Ridge is claiming as his. He is an insensitive idiot. He played with Katie’s feelings then dumped her but Brooke was dumped 1st for texting Deacon regarding Hope and dumped the 2nd time basically at the altar because Ridge couldn’t forgive her for a relationship with Bill–after Katie initially pushed them together! Too many double standards. I’m for Brooke. I think she’s fantastic. Please give her a story line and a good man. Not another jerk like love them/use them then tear them down and leave them Ridge!!! BTW. Ron Moss was 100% better than the current husky voice actor I don’t care to egg knowledge because I cannot stand him !!!

Brooke is so lovely and beautiful woman, Brooke is also only woman who can keep secret an like blapping Taylor and Stephanie. Brooke least human change to tell her self truth.

Although Some storylines are just not believable like Liam passing out in the bathroom of the plane, at least they move this show along and get to the point faster. They only have 30 minutes and it moves to a conclusion much fast than Y&R. I have really began to like this show better for that reason.

Nathan Fillion Talks His Start On OLTL On ‘The View’ With Whoopi Goldberg

On Thursday’s episode of ABC’s The View, Nathan Fillion visited the show promoting his series, The Rookie.  But during the beginning of his conversation with Whoopi Goldberg, he talked about what he learned from his humble beginnings in show business as Joey Buchanan on the beloved One Life to Live.

Of course, OLTL fans recall that Nathan was involved in a romantic storyline with Llanview icon, Robin Strasser (Dorian) and played the on-screen son to another icon, Erika Slezak (Viki).

Fillion shared about this time on One Life: “Everything I did and everything I do I learned on that show.  I never speak poorly on daytime … it was such a warm kind place to be.   I learned everything there.  I don’t know where an actor can go and work with people that have worked in the business for 25, 35, 40 years, and I had no idea what i’m doing …and they said, ‘no problem here is what you do’.  So, it was very good people.”

Goldberg also alluded to that she “missed the soaps” meaning All My Children and One Life to Live that shot right where they are in New York City at the ABC studios on 66th and 67th street.

Watch Nathan talk his early career and more with the ladies of The View below.  Then, let us know what you think about the sentiments he share from his time at One Life to Live via the comment section.

Y&R’s Thad Luckinbill To Produce ‘Postscript’ The Film Adaptation of Sequel To “P.S. I Love You”

We all know that Thad Luckinbill (Ex-J.T Hellstrom, The Young and the Restless) wears many hats in the entertainment industry.  He acts, he writes, he produces, he sings … is there anything that this talented guy doesn’t do?

Now comes word that Luckinbill’s production company (with his brother Trent and Molly Smith), Black Label Media, in conjunction with Alcon Entertainment, has secured the rights to the the novel Postscript and will turn it into a motion picture.

Postscript is the recently released sequel to Cecelia Ahern’s 2004 debut novel, P.S. I Love You.  The original movie starred two-time Oscar winner, Hilary Swank as Holly who loses her husband tragically when he dies from a brain tumor.  Then, a grieving Holly discovers that her husband has left behind 10 letters designed to help Holly overcome her sorrow and transition to a new life.

According to Deadline, who broke the news of this film deal: In, Postscript (which hit book stores this week in the U.S.) the story picks up Holly seven years after her husband’s death with Holly having peacefully moved on with her life.  However, when Holly’s sister asks her to tell the story of the “PS, I Love You” letters on her podcast — she does so reluctantly, not wanting to reopen old wounds. Soon after the episode airs, people start reaching out to Holly, and they all have one thing in common: they’re terminally ill and want to leave their own missives behind for loved ones.”
